Perlane® in Atlanta, GA
As you get older, your skin has less elasticity and collagen. Over time, lines and wrinkles form due to the reduced level of these vital substances. Perlane®, also known as Restylane® Lyft, is an injectable treatment for the signs of aging that appear on several areas of your face. At Atlanta Aesthetics, Dr. Cristen Catignani and Dr. Christopher Killingsworth, a double board-certified Atlanta plastic surgeon, uses Perlane® to help their patients in Atlanta, Forsyth County, Cumming and surrounding areas look younger without surgery.
Injections to Reduce Facial Folds and Wrinkles
Perlane®, or Restylane® Lyft, contains hyaluronic acid, or HA, that is naturally found in the skin. HA keeps skin wrinkle-free by attracting and binding with water which, in turn, adds volume to soften lines and folds. By replacing the lost HA in your skin, HA helps your skin overcome the damage that is caused by aging and sun exposure. The HA is absorbed by the body slowly, so the results are long-lasting, but follow-up treatments are needed to maintain the results.

Evaluation for Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) Treatments
Because Perlane® contains HA that occurs naturally in your skin, an allergic response is normally not a consideration for Perlane® treatments. Dr. Killingsworth or Dr. Catignani will, though, discuss your medical history, including any experiences with allergic reactions, to ensure the safety and efficacy of the treatments. If he determines that Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) is right for you, he discusses the treatment schedule, including the number of injections, frequency of treatments and anticipated results.
The Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) Procedure
Men and women in the Atlanta area rely on Dr. Killingsworth or Dr. Catignani for treatment with Perlane® and other dermal fillers because he administers the injections with little to no discomfort to the patient while achieving incredible results. Perlane® (Restylane® Lyft) is injected into the layers of skin using a fine gauge needle that is smaller than the needle that is used for your immunizations. He injects the product into several areas of the wrinkle or fold to create a smooth and natural contour. Treatment time takes less than one hour, and you see some initial results after the first treatment. As the HA attracts water, you will see a gradual improvement, and the results last for six to 12 months. Follow-up treatments are needed periodically to maintain the youthful appearance of your skin.
